Chris Carr BREAKS land speed record!
John B and Andrew Gray both sent us emails saying 'You might already know, but Chris Carr broke the land speed record yesterday'. Well, John we didn't. Here's what was reported on Cycle News' website
Chris Carr called the Cycle News offices this afternoon to inform us that he'd just broken the motorcycle land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, in Denis Manning's Bub streamliner.
"We just broke the existing land speed record for motorcycles in the Mike Cook-promoted Land Speed Shootout," Carr said. "The speed was 366.382 mph - the two way average. But it's a record pending ratification by the FIM."
Well done, Chris!
Did we mention he's going to be in Peterborough in less than two weeks? GI
